I have been off-line for a while so I missed this interesting thread.

NONMEM jobs are not compliant in themselves, but can be run in a compliant
environment. As some one else already mentioned a product I will refer you
to my paper at the PhUSE 2005 conference. It mentions SAS but the
environment discussed in that paper covers SAS, S-plus (batch) and NONMEM.

The easiest place to get the paper is at lex Janssen's site :
